Simply my opinion that the GnR version was sub-par. McCartney's singing was sublime; Axl seemed oblivious to the meaning of the words and sang it like a teenage garage rocker. And as almost any musician will tell you, a parody by Al is a compliment. It is respectful in the meticulous way that the song is reproduced.

You're welcome to your opinion but saying that a Weird Al song is "bound to be sub-par" is simply ridiculous and unsupportable.
